>>> welcome to "this week in defense news." i'm vago muradian. after more than a decade after war, marine snipers in afghanistan say they need better weapons and ammunition. we talk to one reporter who is embedded with marine sharp shooters in action. but first over a career spanning more than 60 years few have earned a more formidable reputation as an analytical thinker than harold brown who was the nation's 14th defense secretary during the carter administration. a true prodigy he earned hi doctorate in physics from columbia university when he was just 21. he started his career at livermore lab in california and eventually moving to the pentagon where he became the director of defense research and engineering then air force secretary and eventually defense secretary. his ability to handle a staggering workload are legend including read and annotating 400 page briefing books overnight. during the career brown shaped fighters like the f-15 and f-16 that remain the air force's backbone fleet today. and championed jointness among the military serv before the failed iran hostage resc
to secretary of defense. he referred to the pro-israel lobby as the jewish lobby. do think it is fair to hold chuck hegel to account for that remark. >> i think that remark is troublesome. it shows at the best lack of sensitivity. at the worst, prejudice. i am concerned about the nomination. obviously chuck hegel has been at the center for many years and has good attributes. there's a lot of controversy not only with that remark, but with some of his votes. it is troublesome. i've been hearing a lot for my constituents, mainly in opposition to his nomination. >> there are two sets of things i have come up, one of them defected he declined to sign some letters in the senate that were related to issues relating to the middle east. he voted against sanctions on iran and libya. he has expressed the view that press containment might be an option. that does not seem to be in line with the president's policy or recent votes in the senate. what is your view on that? >> those things are all true. it seems there is some kind of an endemic hostility towards israel. he served in the senate for a number o
. and when something really developed that was important for the defense department and it involved a danger to our government or could do damage to the department or they needed something really seriously needed it, often times in this government we can't respond and we don't respond effective lifment they would go to daniel inouye and it would be fixed. because they understood that peace through strength was the best way to avoid war and they felt a sense of great response tobblet ensure that the defense department was not damaged on their watch. and their experience and judgment is such that they could tell the difference between complaints and real danger to america's defense capability. i would just say, mr. president, that daniel inouye has established a record that places him among the finest senators to ever serve here, one of the finest hunal beings to ever serve here. and i want to say as a member of the armed services committee how much i appreciated his particular commitment to ensuring the american defense capability remains second to none and his willingness to take the steps n
? >> guest: there was a common law right in england allowing people to have firearms for self-defense and other purposes issue and that right, common law right, traveled across the ocean with the colonists, and they needed the guns here, whereas in england, mostly, they did not. people soon came to have the facility, and knowledge of firearms, and, of course, as we all know, it produced the results of victory against the most powerful military country in the world at the time in the revolutionary war. >> host: i want to talk about that a little bit, and, again, people have hazy views on history, and, you know, it comes from movies or tv a lot of the time. when we had the revolutionary period, what was the role of guns in these militias or requirements that we talked about? >> guest: well, george washington didn't think a lot of the militia. he grouched about it at times, but he also made remarks that allowed how the militia was a useful thing to have and couldn't have bill the army without the existence of the militia and people in the militias, and more importantly, volunteers and ot
and their family, but the eisenhower's were amazing with me. john, susan, david are completely open, not defensive, which is unusual. incredibly helpful and i could not have done this book without them. so thank you, susan. six weeks after dwight eisenhower became president, stalin died. paik caught together top advisers and officials in that, what's the plan? .. is >> little bit like colonel sanders of kentucky fried chicken. was clearly a figure. ike was rooting for the general, the head of the red army was ike's ally in defeating the nazis in world war ii. eisenhower sent his son john out to do a little spying. john seidel up to him. things are not as they seem. president eisenhower did not find out who was really in charge until the fifth day of the conference, when ike proposed what he called his opened scottish plan. the big fear in those early days of the nuclear age was a surprise attack. so ike proposed that each country on the other countries to fly over head to take any preparation of an attack. the soviet delegation initially seemed like the idea, but at a reception afterwards a short

. the officer resorted to shooting the armed suspect out of self- defense. baltimore county police say the officer on patrol spotted a suspicious man behind the service station just before 4:00 on sunday morning. >> he approached a man and asked him to step out from behind the business. the man refused and displayed a knife. >> authorities say the officer attempted to use his taser, but it was not effective. >> the man continued to walk toward the officer with a knife. fearing for his safety, the officer discharges weapon. >> the suspect was taken to the hospital with a single gunshot wound where he was later pronounced dead. police say it is not clear why the man was behind the service station. that is part of the ongoing investigation. the condition of the officer is not known at this time. we do know the officer has been placed on routine leave pending the outcome of the investigation, which is typical for these kinds of cases. >> city police are working to identify the body found in the inner harbor. a passer-by discovered the body floating in the harbor along pratt street this mor

'm the president of the united states, but it was a little defensive about it because, you know, he probably should have gotten rid of dulles. they are clearer in retrospect than they are at the time. ike was a great manager, but he was arguably a little slow to get rid of people. i think not in world war ii, no problem with sacking generals in world war ii, but maybe a little slow in his own administration, at least in the second term. this is one squishy area in his presidency. i spent a lot of time on it. my long study of intelligence on the outside, amateur at it, but presidents think you can snap your fingers, and the cia does miraclous things. it doesn't work that way. eisenhower did understand that. he was reasonable about this. this is all highly relevant because right now, i'm sure the united states is thinking about covert action on iran. the golden years of the cia are about to come back because we don't want to attack iran. we don't to bomb iran because that starts a war, but on the other hand, we don't want iran to get nuclear weapons. take those off the table, that leaves covert actio
for defense or hunting or sports shooting but they are absolutely deadly when used in a rampage like we saw in connecticut. the bill we propose would limit the size of magazines to 10 rounds. this will not stop all the killings but it can limit the damage by giving targeted people a chance to escape, a chance to survive. the american people are very clear in their message to congress today. ignore the will of the american people at your peril. they want change. they want it now. we can bring change by passing this bill on friday. >> i thank congresswoman degette for bringing us altogether this morning and for her ongoing leadership on this issue. as you can see, we have a great deal of sad experience. mr. barber was wounded himself the day he saw his colleague killed and our colleague, congresswoman gifford so severely wounded. we have our colleagues from connecticut, our colleague congresswoman mccarthy. a champion on this issue. our colleague from rhode island who can speak with some authority on this issue as well. and bobby rush, we'll never forget your own personal experience as well.

earplugs out. 20 kids just got slaughtered, and we have to come to the table not defensively and aacknowledge these are not just other people's kids. they could be our kids and grandkids next time. i think the entertainment culture has to accept some responsibility. you know, in almost every one of these cases of mass shootings, it's the same pattern. a young man troubled, reclusive, almost always involved in some kind of violent entertainment media gets guns and then kills a lot of people. we have to stop it. >> there's a lot here i wanted to ask you about, and i want to move on to senator chuck hagel, a man you know. we are led to believe he may be the person president obama wants to lead the defense department when secretary panetta leaves. you may know that a number of jewish organizations and folks on capitol hill have objected already to the idea of hagel saying he has had a number of anti-israeli votes, that he has said things they perceive as anti-israeli. has chuck hagel in your opinion disqualified himself because these various stances from becoming secretary of def

that it is worth a try. you have heard the objections. what would you say in defense of this idea? stand up and we will get to the microphone. >> depending on the person's background, perhaps this is a motivational tool to make them understand maybe i can benefit from reading and when they do read they get turned on to reading and they get some kind of a monetary value. >> and what is your name? >> melanie. >> so, you say the goal is to get them turned down to reading. but maybe it can kickstart a good habit. whereas others worry that the money will actually crowd out the good have it. you don't think that will necessarily happen. it might actually start the habit. are there others that think this policy is worth a try? yes, the man with the cap, go ahead. stand up and we will get you a microphone. stand up and tell us your name. >> the question would be what you pick your career based on how much money you make the lead automatically cancel out so many carriers that don't pay much but they are very rewarding. >> do you think people should or should not choose their career based on the money? >> n
as the potential secretary of defense? >> senator kerry will go through. president obama won the election and senator kerry is an appropriate secretary of state for a light footprint often unwise foreign policy that he will execute president obama's foreign policy competently. i think senator hagel will not be nominated or confirmed. etan was a republican senator but on foreign policy issues in the last several years and he has been way to the left of president obama in terms of iran sanctions. >> the iran sanctions votes which got 92 and 97 votes in the senate and he voted against. there is a letter signed by 99 senators, every other senator that he refused to sign. on israel, he talked about the jewish lobby in 2006. for a republican president to nominate someone talk about the jewish lobby having too much influence would that person be thought appropriate to be secretary of defense? i don't think so. i think senator hagel won't be nominated by president obama. he likes president obama and they went on this trip together and he liked the idea of having a republican and all that but repu
on everybody and extra cuts on defense. you know he is a professor. he is a lecturer. i think he is accustomed to telling people what he wants them to know and then eliciting a certain response. in the house we have had bipartisan support to extend taxes, deal with a sequester, the things on harry reid's desk. we would like to see action from the president and the senate. >> congressman blackburn thank you very much. great to see you. we hope you have a very merry christmas. >> thank you. >>> this just into our newsroom. new video of an airstrike in syria. a report that dozens have been killed and many more injured in the attack by the government on a bakery in the town of halfaya. that town was recently taken over by rebels. >>> during the budget meeting, they say the u.s. needs to reexamine how the military plays a role in protecting our diplomats. at a time when our country is looming near fiscal cliff and see -- see questions station is around the bend how do you protect? he is a member of the armed services committee from california. congressman, thank you very much for joining us. >> goo
? if there's one thing the sequester does, it cuts defense spending, something you would never be able to do. >> i think progressives should do nothing. steve schmidt, john mccain's campaign manager said if mitt romney lost the election, there would be civil war within the republican party. this is what we are seeing now. what was so weird about the last episode is this caucus was in a room which was virtually like fantasyland. they were arguing over a proposal that made no sense and that was going nowhere. it had -- they are like tearing each other apart over it. this is a party that not only i love your line where you said they weren't able to achieve partisanship. this is a party that is no longer capable of governing. >> right. >> you can't let them be part of the process if they are going to behave like that. >> that's the point. if they can't pass a bill that exempted $999,999 of increases, what can they do? >> i think it saved obama from himself. the deal he was offering to bear, to raise taxes on people making $400,000 was a really bad one, right? now we get to come back to a new con
on arms control and missile defense, wrong on china. i could go on, but i think that -- lou: we are about to run out of countries. >> the president got what he wanted. it will be more of the same. lou: to you agree? >> i think it is a pretty good choice. he won the election. he gets to choose. confirmed pretty readily? represents a sort of mainstream of american foreign policy, a little bit less for me, but not as far left as the first joist. lou: interesting, john mccain and others came out with really unreserved support for senator kerry. let's turn, if we may, to the failure in benghazi. and this report looks to me, i no there are varying views on this. and other whitewash, it seems. >> and the misses the point. we know what happened before and during periodsgrew up some allies, cover-ups. to me with the important thing is, what happened afterwards, which is nothing. then never hunt down, retaliated, responded. look at what happened to the original september 11th. 1998, attacks on u.s. embassies in east africa and in 2000 attack on the u.s.s. cole, we did not repond. we beefed up secur
colleague from nebraska, being secretary of defense. john cornyn said he would oppose that nomination because of his views on israel and other issues. would you have any problem with that nomination of senator hagel or for that matter senator kerry? >> well, i have no problem at all with john kerry. i've served with him for four years on the senate foreign relations committee. he's done outstanding work particularly in the middle east, has been a great envoy and diplomat to the united states and i think he would do great as secretary of state. as far as mr. hagel is concerned, i served with him on the senate, but he hasn't been nominated yet and i'll reserve any judgment until after the hearings we have on confirmation if, in fact, he is nominated. >> senator klobuchar, on senator hagel, even the top democrat on the foreign affairs committee eliot engel said he has severe issues with secretary -- the possibility of secretary hagel because of what he called his endemic hostility towards israel. do you share those concerns? >> well, again, i want to see what happens to these hearings. i
become secretary of defense if he's the president's nominee? >> a lot of republicans have asked hard questions. i don't think he's going to get many republicans votes. i like chuck but his positions are really out of the mainstream and well to the left of the president. i think it would be a challenging nominations but the hearings will matter. chuck will have a chance to defend himself. >> will you support him? >> i'm going to wait and see what happens in the hearings. i've got questions with chuck and iran, hamas and hezbollah, his position toward israel, just afghanistan. i want to hear what he has to say. but very troubling comments by a future secretary of defense. >> senator schumer, should the president make that nomination? >> well, that's his choice. i think once he makes it his record will be studied carefully, but until that point i think we're not going to know what's going to happen. >> can you support him? >> i'd have to study his record. i'm not going to comment until the president makes a nomination. >> we're going to leave it there. gentlemen, happy holidays to you b
on research of the topic. the president of the professional services council urges the department of defense not to repeat the mistakes made in the early '90s when cut were made across the board and the work force was disproportionately impacted. he urges the cuts should now be more strategic. the story on how it is having a negative impact on the profit of vendors selling to the fed's. therefore, it should be no surprise when you see the results of another survey put out by mamarket connections which shows how government contractors arare seekingevenue opportunities oututside the federal government.. >> we havepent recent weeks looking for a holiday g gift from capitol hill. automatic spending cuts due to kick in in a matter of days but we do not have a bomb of coal to shshow for these talks. two of our favorites -- professor peter momorici from the univsity of maryland and jo boak reporter from "the fisc times." i of always been a big believer in capital hill. i used to work ere. i think there are good people trying to do o good things but there is harard to find much good coming o out of
for the plat, dean torrance was never charged. when the trial began in february of 1964 the defense took the strategy of blaming the victims to dizzying new heights. >> it was keenan who devised their defense. >> every time i talked to a lawyer it was are you sure this is not a publicity stunt. everybody was sure it was a publicity stunt. that gave me the idea. >> all three had their own lawyers. john irwin's attorney was gladys root is, known for wearing outlandish hats to court. >> she was a piece of. she was. >> she claimed the whole thing was a hoax orchestrated by frank, jr. purely for publicity. in the trial transcript obtained by fox files root labeled the kidnapping an advertising scheme and planned contractual agreement. the sinatra family was outraged. >> i remember it mostly being oh he fended and stunned by -- offended and stunned by the lawyer gladys root. she knew that once you ring that bell it is rung. >> in his opening statement, keenan's lawyer also blamed sinatra saying that "the actions of frank sinatra, jr. are suspect of chicanery from start to finish. >> kidnapping
. that will not be enough. what the underlying bill does to eliminate the defense sequester cuts president obama has called dangerous, it says, the only people who should get food stamps are people who qualify for food stamps. that is right. the underlying bill says the only folks who should get food stamps are those who qualify. it turns out, like every federal program, there is fraud. some folks are receiving taxpayer-sponsored benefits today who have not earned them, who do not find themselves entitled to them by virtue of their circumstances. because this bill aims to eliminate the fraud, folks come to the floor and say, why are republicans throwing hungry people out during christmas. it is outrageous. we cannot have a conversation about serious things in a serious time. the outrageous pointed to last night, what happened last night is exactly what i would hope would happen in a conversation like this. almost to a person, every democratic member in that rules committee said, all we have in front of us is a tax bill. all we have in front of us is a tax bill and every one in america knows the problem is
and 18s, which are two of the highest mobile air defenses that have sold to syria and enter the past. i know that remains. the mi25 helicopters were forced to turn it around. it is a big deal. the regime really needed more mi-25's. they did not have enough. i have not seen that an interlock time. i do not even know if they have one left operational. that is definitely an issue. as far as the current report about the number of vessels heading toward syria, my of the cost guess is they're getting ready for an operation and enter syria. there are a lot of russian >> pats of interest. that they need to get them out. -- >> pats in circassia. -- expats in syria. as far as the day today -- fuel is difficult. have not figure that out yet. most of these supplies are coming and three flights through iran. the rebels shutdown damascus international, that is okay. the syrians have a lot of their bases they can use. it is a requirement for a run to continued to back assad. the second question, this is an extremely complicated question that i am in the process of writing a longer report on. what i wi
. georgetown's defense all over the eagles here. porter, georgetown pulling away for their ninth straight. kristen berset with more. >> reporter: georgetown and american are two teams that are headed in opposite directions. the eagles have now lost three in a row while the hoyas are riding a seven game win streak. now, today's game ended as most expected, with georgetown dominating the d.c. neighbor. but both teams see there's a lot of work to be done, especially with conference play looming around the corner. >> we've been struggling. before this game, we've been struggling. so we've been really emphasizing improvement and not so much focus on the win/loss record but instead focusing on doing the things that can allow us to become a better team. >> none of us in that locker room are sitting there with our heads in the sand saying we're playing perfect basketball. we all realize there's so many areas of the game that we seem to get better at. >> we're 10-1. we just want to come back after the christmas break and keep it up, you know. continue to play good basketball. >> the hoyas can take
a week ago. we pick it up in the second quarter. griffin's defensive teammates helping out the cause. nick foles' pass gets tipped and intercepted by london fletcher. his third int in three straight games. ensuing drive, griffin hits josh morgan and he works his way in for the 11-yard touchdown. skins up 13-6 now. third quarter, how many times have we said this all season. alfred morris untouched on his way to the end zone. his tenth touchdown at the season. that ties charlie taylor's redskins rookie record. late in the third, griffin to santana moss. 22-yard score. griffin just drops this pass in there beautifully. watch moss drag that left foot. skins go up 27-13. but the game far from over. fourth quarter, griffin makes a rare mistake. his pass for josh morgan is high. morgan tips it, and it's intercepted by colt anderson. griffin's fifth interception of the year. the eagles made him pay six plays later. dion lewis, 17-yard touchdown run. his first of the season. eagles within a touchdown now, down 27-20. same score, eight seconds to play. eagles at the redskins' 5. foles can't fi
